Update: After 3 years, trying to get rid of the 20 or so I still had, I found that grip it at least a week in advance of playing, it works well, some of the too much tack would be gone, and my hand don't hurt playing with it. It's basically in between old Gamma Supreme and Wilson Pro in term of thickness, weight, durability, and feeling in term of how rubbery(pro being the least rubbery) it is. Tackiness lasts longer than the other 2. So far sounds great, but 3 issues. First, it's a little shorter than both Wilson pro and Gamma Supreme. No by a lot but shorter for sure. Second, brand name and logo stamped on the grip, which I don't like, but it's not as "deep" as some others, not too big of a deal but still a con for sure. Third, it's the harshest feeling OG I've ever tried. It feels really good if you just grip it, but once you start playing, you will feel the harshness. This likely will be a deal break for some people.
